september 28 1976 at the Onogada war memorial in Syracuse,NY. This is one of my favorite PITB. It has that loose funkiness that 76 seems to have, for me this show has a great setlist and captures the feel for 76. The Playin' isnt that long but I feel it accomplishes something and beautifully finds its way into the wheel>S&D>comes a time>drums>eyes> a really good jam entilted (orange tango jam) on the Dicks Picks > dancin >playin reprise
Oh Yeah even though they took this show and one around the same time in Maryland, to make dicks picks 20 you can still get a great aud copy here

Definitely agree with you about the virtues of 76 and this performance! You could really write up a big post just about PITB in 1976. In addition to the show you mention, I like 6/10/76 Boston Music Hall and the other versions from June, and the NYE "Live at the Cow Palace" among others.

Oh man I love that show, my birthday is June 10th so I am biased toward that show, but one of the gems on it is the mission in the rain, they only played that like 4 times, one of my favorite tunes, and 6/10/76 is one of them, I have heard much stronger shows musically but there are some brilliant moments and a great feeling to that show

I know this is about post retirement years but I have to mention the under recognized playin' of 10-18-72 austin ( i think) Texas. That version definitely reached new musical spaces and reached a new level of intensity, it shows the possibilities that can be reached with a song like that
